Just an Update

What a whirlwind of a couple of week's it's been. We've had the opportunity to meet with community leaders including Meals on Wheels and More, Safeplace, Lifeworks, St. Vincent de Paul, the Central Health District, the Community Action Network, and the United Way. What an interesting and fascinating group of organizations (and people).  I've learned so much, and continue to be inspired by the work they do.

We're still plugging away on the beta search and hope to open it up for testing soon. As mentioned in the past our programming skills were pretty rusty, but the world has changed over the last ten years. There are outstanding resources on the web to make it easier. One I would recommend is a javascript framework called EXT JS, provided by Sencha co-founded by a local austin entrepreneur and artist. Really slick stuff and relatively easy to implement.

Next week I will be nose-to-the-grindstone getting ready for a user testing cycle. We're still looking to grow our list of guinea pigs (err, testers), so if you haven't done so already sign up here. And while you're there, go ahead and 'like' Aunt Bertha on the top right. Speaking of facebook, like us there too to stay within earshot (we're quite proud of our newly acquired facebook handle).
